Congress leaders have given up on Priyanka Gandhi too?

Senior congress leader Janardhan Poojary, who was a union minister and headed Karnataka Congress once, has stated that the daughter of Priyanka Gandhi will be the one who will be the saviour of the Congress party.

This claim about Priyanka’s daughter, Miraya Vadra, who is currently 14 years old,  is apparently based on a prediction by an astrologer in Haridwar, who said there would never be a leader like Miraya in India in the future.

The chain of events leading up to the prediction of the astrologer unfolded in the following manner: As claimed by Poojary, who was the right hand man of both Indira and Rajiv, some years ago Sonia Gandhi gave him the horoscope of Miraya so that he could show it to a certain Mr Jischkar who was good at astrology. It was Jischkar who referred Poojary to this great astrologer in Haridwar.

This belief by a senior Congress leader is perplexing as whenever the phrase ‘revival of the Congress party’ is uttered, loyalists immediately associate Priyanka as the one capable of achieving this [1][2][3][4], though Priyanka herself has exhibited Rahul Gandhi like traits which probably have complicated matters.

Of course, the attention of Congress moved to Priyanka Gandhi only after multiple failed attempts at launching the prince, Rahul Gandhi. Thus, we saw the emergence of many such posters:

So now does it mean that slowly veteran Congress leaders are realising that the current generation of the family isn’t capable of saving the ship, and they now need to pin their hopes on the next generation?

This isn’t the only time children of Priyanka Gandhi have been in the news. In 2014, some media houses had published speculations about Rahul Gandhi adopting Priyanka Gandhi’s son Rehan so that he could use the Gandhi surname. These speculations were strongly denied by Priyanka who also reportedly sent legal notices to the newspapers who carried this news.

Whatever be the status of next generation of Gandhis in politics, this news certainly led to a lot of amusement for people on Twitter:
